Farage And Kassam Fall Out Over Second Referendum
Nigel Farage stunned the Brexit community this afternoon by appearing to be open to the prospect of a second referendum on EU membership.
He told Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff:
“What is for certain is that the Cleggs, the Blairs, the Adonises will never ever ever give up – they will go on whinging and whining and moaning all the way through this process.
“So maybe, just maybe, I am reaching the point of thinking that we should have a second referendum on EU membership.”
Remoaners were swift to praise Mr Farage. Chukka Ummuna said:
For perhaps the first time in his life, Nigel Farage is making a valid point.
In a democracy like ours, the British people have every right to keep an open mind about Brexit.
Brexiteers, however, rounded on Mr Farage. Iain Duncan Smith slammed Mr Farage for ‘Trump-style attention seeking’. Gareth Bennet, the UKIP AM recently suspended from the Welsh Senedd, called for Mr Farage to be expelled from UKIP and said he was ‘no longer any kind of spokesman’ for the Party.
Fellow ‘Bad Boy’ of Brexit, Raheem Kassam, Editor In Cheif of Breitbart London, who said he ‘doesn’t break with Nigel very often’ also criticised the UKIP MEP:
And today, Nigel Farage went on television to stave off people saying there’s ‘Bregret’, and the United Kingdom wouldn’t vote in the same way if it voted today, and said: ‘I think it absolutely would, it would vote in a greater measure to Leave the European Union today than it did in 2016.’
“And, therefore, he’s open to suggestions of another straight-up Remain or Leave referendum.”
He went on to say that no matter what Remoaners like Tony Blair and Nick Clegg the people have already spoken and laid out what is to be done.
